This video features the work of Metropolitan Family Service in Portland, Oregon. Learn the inclusive approach they use in their community programs that assist different cultures, ages, and economic needs.
While communicating with people of different cultures, MFS staff are always thinking, “Who are we not including?” “What voices are missing?”
Jorge Cruz, Director of MFS Community Schools explains, “We push really hard to not become a buzzword organization, so for us, the words equity, inclusion, diversity, honor, respect, it’s not necessarily a buzz word for us, its apart of our DNA as an organization and it’s what defines us.”
